I'm just a simple girl who loves the summertime and being with friends and family. I love my life!

There's no going back now.

2011 was the hardest year of my life. Emotionally and physically. There is no exaggeration there so I am so ready to say goodbye.

Here's a month by month recap. I have a horrible memory, though, so we'll see how this goes.


I rang in this year with Matthew and lots of new friends. I went back to school after Christmas break. I also went to an outdoor Vikings game. Brrrrr. I actually can't remember if this was December or January, but close enough.


I spent Valentine's Day with Matthew, making cakes and whatnot. ;)

I drove to Bemidji to go to the Blake Shelton concert with my mom!

Isn't she cute??


I have a love/hate relationship with this month. It's bad. First, Matthew and I went to Cabo. Ahhhmazing.

I celebrated my birthday.

March 16, 2011. I will never forget this date. The love of my life broke my heart. No words can describe the way I felt. I would not, could not (literally), eat.

So many things happened in March. After that disaster my mom drove up to stay with me. I honestly would not have gotten by if she hadn't.

Since I didn't want to do anything else, the rest of my school year consisted of working, working out (I really got into it after the breakup), and going home every single chance I got. Oh, and eating very little. I just couldn't do it. Moving onward.


April saw better days, albeit not many.

My brother's birthday is in April so I guess that counts. Easter and finals' week is about all April saw. Easter may have been in March though...


Moved out of Jamestown and didn't look back. I hung out with my best friend, Brianna (who literally kept me sane and listened to my sob stories and empathized with me), nearly every day.


I really picked up on my running and ran my first race! A 5K in the POURING rain.

That may have been May because in early June I went to Winstock!!

I also went to the Glee concert and multiple Twins baseball games.

Overall, June was a good month. This has gotten long so look for the second half of my year later! It starts out with meeting my beautiful niece. :)

I will say this:

First half of 2011, you really sucked ass. You tested me in ways I never thought I would have to be pushed and tested. I hope I never ever ever have to endure what you put me through, which was Hell. However, through darkness there always shows a light, and I became closer with family and friends like I never thought possible. My mom is now my best best friend and I wouldn't take that back for the world.

See ya later!

With love,

Weekend in pictures and captions.



Long lost friend.

Ohhhh Merlot.

Good times with great friends.

Loverly weekend at home. Can't wait to do it again started Thursday. :)

I hope all my friends had a fantastic weekend as well.

This morning I drove 3 hours at 8:30am and then worked for 8.5 hours. Needless to say, I'm pooped.

With love,

Things I'm Loving--The "I can't sleep because I never go to bed before 2:30 because I work all night" Edition.

Whew! That was a loooong title. Anyyyway...

I am absolutely loving:

- Being home for the weekened. Since I have to work and can't be home all of Christmas break, home this weekend is ahhhmazing.

- The fact that I just signed up for this race!

It's going to be one chilly morning run! I'm doing the 10K by the way...:)

- Spongebob Squarepants. Seriously I cannot get enough. Call me crazy but I laugh at every single dang episode...and if that makes me childish, then so be it.

- That I just ordered some new books for my Kindle. It makes running so much easier!

- Christmas music.

- The fact that I just signed a lease--with NEW friends--for next year's housing situation! Way better than the shithole I live in now.

- My appreciation for the gym I have in my college town. You see, I work out at Anytime Fitness, so I can go to any gym at any time. I went to the gym here in my hometown today and ran...got off the treadmill and couldn't walk because the treadmills are from the stoneage. Upgrade please? I think all gyms should have the same equipment...

- The new skirts I bought tonight to put together a Christmas outfit!

- The bonds I have with each of my parents. So, so, so special and means so much to me.

I think that's enough! I am loving so much more but there are only so many words I can write before people start to get bored. ;)

Goodnight lovelies! I hope you all have a great weekend.

With love,

It's been a while.

Fall 2011 semester of college is OVER! As in bye bye, see ya, sienara, adios, peace out bi******!! :)

But seriously. I've missed blogging and talking to my friends so much! It's nice to finally relax and not have to worry about homework or studying all the time!

Hopefully I'll be showing my face around these parts of the Internet more often now.

Starting with today right before I went to work out!

And then after work when I ate a Christmas tree cake.

And my outfit from work Friday. Some people were probably like "what is she wearing??" But I loved it and that's all that matters!

I think that's all for now! Hope you all have a fantastic Monday! I work every day until Thursday when I am going HOME HOME HOME. I am beyond excited. Can you tell?

I miss last year when I got to go home for my WHOLE Christmas break but now I have to work so I can't. :( Oh the joys of being broke!

Nighty night, friends. I realize it's 3am but this lady doesn't have to work until 5:30pm tomorrow. So I cozied up and popped in a movie.

With love,
